We are please to welcome back to our label one of the few DJs who can claim to be one of the founders of the eclectic Balearic sound. Take a trip back to the 70s and 80s in Northern Italy and you will fine Daniele Baldelli mixing up electronic, African and slo-mo disco records to co-create the Electronica Meccanica sub genre. Records often would be played at the wrong or variable speed to be made to fit into a wide aural tapestry of his unexpected-but-seamlessly-flowing DJ sets. This of course is an aesthetic close to us here at Real Balearic. A sound we are ever so pleased to have as part of the mixing pot for our new Balearic label. For their second single outing on Real Balearic Daniele pairs up with fellow Italian DJ Rocca to serve up "Poouli".
The original "Poouli" registers at the top of the Balearic speed end but the varied synthesizer grooves and vibe are pure 90's balearic (i.e. looking back to the 80s sound and mish-mashing a collage of styles and sound). For the remix package we have deployed a trio of experts coming from various areas. First up is Sare Havlicek. His remix harks back to his Balearic classic "Lazy Summer". Here the skillful Slovenian weaves a sun-washed soundscape of sweeping waves of analog synth and summer filled guitar.
Next up are the German duo Private Agenda. Fresh from some great releases on superb International Feel record label the duo turn their groove laden fingers to a fine remix. Here they keep the groove Balearic and fresh and home in on the snaking lead lines of the original. Its analog synth Balearic-fest all the way.
To close off the release we are really pleased to present something really quite beautiful. Italian musician Gigi Masin is from Venice and specializes in ambient soundscapes and sound fields. Here he strips back the track to its emotional core for a scene-setting, curtain-closing heartfelt ending.
A fine EP of Balearica from some of the people who invented it!
